One of the surreal parts of visiting Liberia was traveling through the country-side and seeing ordinary delapidated buildings being used as military check-points for the UN. Machine gun turrets and all. This one was occupied by the Bangladeshi detachment.
Taken at the Betty Jonah Orphanage in Yekepa, Liberia. Ranfel and Rueben eagerly escorted us through the grounds of the orphanages. This photo was taken after they showed us their "possum" they had caught. It looked like a big rat to me.
This was taken at the abandoned trainyard in Yekepa Liberia. It was operated by the Lamco mining company until the site was abandoned 15 years ago when civil war broke out in the region. This place was so facinating, it looked like something from a post-apocalytic movie, seeing the jungle reclaiming the area.
